Rice Krispies Cake | A Subtle Revelry

I was assigned to bring a rice krispie treat to a beginning of the summer party. I decided to try my hand at the famous treat in cake form. And can I tell you – it was amazing! The cake is my favorite type of combination; easy to make, really good to eat, and creative to present. To make it you don’t even have to turn the oven on, perfect for the warm days ahead.

How to make a rice krispies treat cake

To make the rice krispies cake, make three pans of rice krispies treats. Since the layers will be very thick be sure to use an extra soft treat recipe. Here is my favorite; Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a large saucepan, add in one 10 oz bag of marshmallows. Stir until marshmallows are about 85% melted (not all the way).

Take off heat source and add 7 cups of Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well combined and pour into cake mold. Let dry about five minutes before popping out to dry completely for about an hour.

Using a cheesecake pan is the easiest option since you can pack the treats in tight and then pop them easily out. I molded each cake and popped them out to dry completely on wax paper.

Once the molds are made, stack and frost the cake!

    I love this – have been wanting to make rice krispie treats with frosting for a while and this is much much cuter…

    Mary, thanks – I used frosting from a can, as you probably could have guessed;) Here’s a great recipe though if you want a good thick frosting that would taste even more amazing – http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/gale-gand/quick-vanilla-buttercream-frosting-recipe/index.html

    How difficult was it to cut?

    Jen, I’m going to be totally honest – we used a serrated knife (the one I usually use to cut french bread). A simple cake server will not work. But much like the french bread – it was SO WORTH IT! Hope that helps:)

  6. This is pure brilliance! I love this idea and rice krispies with frosting are soooo tasty. Much easier than a cake! Thanks for the post.

  7. OMG!! Think i might make this for my sister’s wedding next week!!! Love it!

    This looks great – simple and yummy! I’m thinking of using marshmallow creme or making a marshmallow meringue and frosting with that – to make it as “rice-krispiesh” as possible! Thanks so much for this!

    I want to do this for my 50th wedding celebration–I want one for each table as the decoration as well. How fun!!! Also, I am unable to see the recipe.

    Love? this idea but how do you keep it from drying out? I want to do this for my Husbands 50th … He loves Rice Krispies and hates icing so I was just going to use marshmallow cream for the layers and then decorate it with ribbon etc to match his party theme. Will it dry out if it is left out on display during dinner?
